Quick Disability Determinations

From the South Bend Tribune:
The Social Security Administration this week launched a quick way to qualify someone for disability benefits in Indiana. ...

More than 90 percent of the cases helped by the new process in other states so far involved people with cancer or kidney failure, and babies born with a low birth weight, said Carmen Moreno, spokeswoman for Social Security's regional office in Chicago. ...

In the Boston area, where the process was tested, 3 percent of the applicants qualified for "quick disability determination," as it's called, according to Social Security.
Can someone explain to me what is new here apart from the name?
